I'm sure you're getting tired of hearing about it by now, but I'm still enjoying my fling with Wodehouse (read about my earlier affairs here and here). This is yet another collection of short stories and it includes the following:
- Jeeves Takes Charge - in which we learn how Jeeves came into the employ of Bertie Wooster, and how Bertie came to rely so heavily on Jeeves's judgement
- Without the Option - in which Bertie's pal is jailed and Bertie must impersonate said pal for several weeks
- The Artistic Career of Corky - in which Bertie has adventures in New York
- The Aunt and the Sluggard - in which the New York adventures continue
- Jeeves and the Uninvited Guest - in which Bertie and Jeeves have a falling out of sorts while still in New York
- Jeeves and the Hard Boiled Egg - in which I found reason to laugh out loud yet again
As I've said before, I'm not a huge fan of short stories but this collection was quite enjoyable. I'd like to get back to an entire novel by Wodehouse, however I'm working through whatever is available at the library so I'll take what I can get.
I've gotten some great recommendations for other Wodehouse creations from my readers - thanks! Have I convinced any of you out there to try him out yet?
